The Los Angeles Lakers plan to waive PF/C DeMarcus Cousins, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne. Cousins hasn’t played at all this season while recovering from a torn ACL suffered while with the Warriors. He’s hopeful to return this season, so we’ll see if another team makes a run at the four-time All-Star.
